Raven Curse is a prequel of the Raven-Saga in the form of a video game. You will read a lot of text, but there are also some simple point and click elements so that you can discover the world even better and find hidden secrets.

Tokyo Dark by Cherrymochi is a mix of point-and-click and visual novel and tells the story of Detective Ito, who makes frightening discoveries in the dark corners of Tokyo.
IMPORTANT: Due to legal reasons and in order to be able to release this translation at all, I have to label it as “fansub”. So I hereby declare that this is 100% a fansub and in no way related to Cherrymochi.
“Detective Ito’s partner is missing, but what starts as a straightforward case soon spirals into a twisted nightmare that causes Ito to confront her past and question her own sanity. Tokyo Dark places the narrative in your hands. Your decisions and actions change Detective Ito’s state of mind, opening doors to different possibilities as you attempt to find your partner and understand the dark and horrifying world around you.”

Ash of Gods: Redemption by AurumDust is a turn-based RPG that combines tactical combat, CCG elements, and a constantly evolving story in which no one is safe from death, including the main characters.
The story was written by Russian fantasy author Sergey Malitsky; the soundtrack was made by Adam Skorupa, Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz and Michal Cielecki, whose previous work includes The Witcher, Bulletstorm, Painkiller, EVE Online, Call of Juarez and Shadow Warrior. The game also contains visual novel elements and is, with about 300,000 words, the largest game I’ve translated so far.
The game is now available for PC. Console ports for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One will follow.
“Ash of Gods is the story of three separate protagonists rising in response to a centuries-old menace once thought to be mere folklore.
Ash of Gods’ storyline is constantly evolving in response to players’ choices, sometimes even resulting in death. But, the death of a character is not game over. Instead, the story moves forward with the death of that character and previous choices continuing to impact future events.
Combat in Ash of Gods is a blend of both traditional turn-based strategy and CCG gameplay. While individual tactics will depend upon the skills and classes of your characters, you will unlock and accumulate cards that have the power to unleash powerful abilities, sometimes altering the course of an entire battle.”
Garden of Oblivion by Träumendes Mädchen (developer of Ambre and Being Beauteous) is a short horror point & click game about a teenager trapped in a dream-like garden. Will Reven be able to escape? It’s up to you! The new version on Steam offers, among other things, my German translation and more new features. Have fun!
“One day Reven awakens in a strange but beautiful place where the young teenager is treated like a very special guest. There are talking animals, each being rather kind and friendly. Unless the door is mentioned. The one in the back of the garden. But what could be behind that mysterious door? And why Reven isn’t allowed to go out? You shouldn’t try to know the truth…”
“Regina, our heroine, magically appears in Eroolia. She has no idea how she ended up in Eroolia, and here, she meets Juli and his companions, whom she ends up joining on their journey to Laarz, a country of cat people. Will she be able to return home? Is Regina’s presence in Eroolia an accident or is there a purpose behind it? Can she trust Juli who seems to be full of secrets?”
The visual novel is about 50% longer than the first installment, offers partly animated CGs and Japanese voice acting. With custom theme songs as well as two animated movies, the second game of the Story of Eroolia will not disappoint you!
The Four Alices by Mia Blais-Côté is a short visual novel with autistic protagonists. Originally written in Quebec French, the game has been translated into several languages. Among others into German by me! 😉

He later gave Corliss a chance to return to a week before she died.
But does she really need to go to the heaven? And what is the truth behind her untimely death?
